Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by R.N. Prasher
#1. If I do not agree with something or do not like something, it will be wrong to presume that I hate it. Presuming disagreement or dislike to be the same as hatred is stifling engagement. Disengagement leads to otherness, which leads to fear, which in turn leads to real hatred. Either we tolerate disagreement and dislike or we have to tolerate real hatred. The intolerance of disagreement is filling civil society lexicon with phobias each of which is leading to a disconnect, to another closed door. It may sound odd but only tolerance of disagreement demolishes walls. Doors and windows, open or closed, presume that there exists a wall, a wall created by intolerance. And doors and windows, if they exist, are closed too easily, at the slightest of pretexts. #Quote by R.N. Prasher
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Matthew Flinders
#2. Political cynicism, disengagement, democratic decadence - call it what you will - is too often an excuse for physical and intellectual laziness. #Quote by Matthew Flinders
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Alain De Botton
#3. A popular perception that political news is boring is no minor issue; for when news fails to harness the curiosity and attention of a mass audience through its presentational techniques, a society becomes dangerously unable to grapple with its own dilemmas and therefore to marshal the popular will to change and improve itself. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Holly Sprink
#4. What if we saw differences in cultures, in moral choices, and in belief as reasons to engage people instead of excuses to disengage and quickly exit? #Quote by Holly Sprink
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#5. Often children who survive extremely adverse childhoods have learned a particular survival strategy. I call it 'strategic detachment.' This is not the withdrawal from reality that leads to psychological disturbance, but an intuitively calibrated disengagement from noxious aspects of their family life or other aspects of their world. They some how know, This is not all there is. They hold the belief that a better alternative exists somewhere and that someday they will find their way to it. They persevere in that idea. They somehow know Mother is not all women, Father is not all men, this family does not exhaust the possibilities of human relationships-there is life beyond this neighborhood. This does not spare them suffering in the present, but it allows them not to be destroyed by it. Their strategic detachment does not guarantee that they will never know feelings of powerlessness, but it helps them not to be stuck there. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Tara Brach
#6. Learning to pause is the first step in the practice of Radical Acceptance. A pause is a suspension of activity, a time of temporary disengagement when we are no longer moving toward any goal ... The pause can occur in the midst of almost any activity and can last for an instant, for hours or for seasons of our life ... We may pause in the midst of meditation to let go of thoughts and reawaken our attention to the breath. We may pause by stepping out of daily life to go on a retreat or to spend time in nature or to take a sabbatical ... You might try it now: Stop reading and sit there, doing "no thing," and simply notice what you are experiencing. #Quote by Tara Brach
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Philip Yancey
#7. Prayer may seem at first like disengagement, a reflective time to consider God's point of view. But that vantage presses us back to accomplish God's will, the work of the kingdom. We are God's fellow workers, and as such we turn to prayer to equip us for the partnership. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by John Connolly
#8. I think the act of reading imbues the reader with a sensitivity toward the outside world that people who don't read can sometimes lack. I know it seems like a contradiction in terms; after all reading is such a solitary, internalizing act that it appears to represent a disengagement from day-to-day life. But reading, and particularly the reading of fiction, encourages us to view the world in new and challenging ways ... It allows us to inhabit the consciousness of another which is a precursor to empathy, and empathy is, for me, one of the marks of a decent human being. #Quote by John Connolly
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#9. The best way to have a good political system is to avoid politics. But political disengagement deprives us of opportunities for bitching at politicians and pushing them around. This is occasionally useful and always a pleasure. In our democracy we don't get in trouble by trying to make politicians mad. We get in trouble by trying to make them like us. Our political system goes to hell when we want it to give us things. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Javier Marias
#10. The principal and the most common problem at the beginning of any fairly conventional marriage is that regardless of the facilities for disengagement available to the contracting parties, you traditionally experience an unpleasant sense of having arrived and, therefore, of having reached and end, or rather, that the time has come to devote yourself to something else. I know that this feeling is both pernicious and erroneous and that giving in to it or accepting it is the reason why so many promising marriages collapse no sooner have they begun. I know that what you should do is to overcome that initial feeling and , far from devoting yourself to something else, you should devote yourself to the marriage itself, as if confronted by the most important structure and task of your life, even if you're tempted to believe that the task has already been completed and the structure built. #Quote by Javier Marias
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Albert Bandura
#11. Moral justification is a powerful disengagement mechanism. Destructive conduct is made personally and socially acceptable by portraying it in the service of moral ends. This is why most appeals against violent means usually fall on deaf ears. #Quote by Albert Bandura
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by David Foster Wallace
#12. Al Gore, best described by CNN sound tech Mark A. as "amazingly lifelike"; Steve Forbes, with his wet forehead and loony giggle; G.W. Bush's patrician smirk and mangled cant; even Clinton himself, with his big red fake-friendly face and "I feel your pain." Men who aren't enough like human beings even to hate-what one feels when they loom into view is just an overwhelming lack of interest, the sort of deep disengagement that is often a defense against pain. Against sadness. In fact, the likeliest reason why so many of us care so little about politics is that modern politicians make us sad, hurt us deep down in ways that are hard even to name, much less talk about. It's way easier to roll your eyes and not give a shit. You probably don't want to hear about all this, even. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Marvin Kalb
#13. Reagan was president. He had the authority to end the infighting, set policy, and advance American interests in the Middle East. Before him was a clear choice; Shultz arguing for engagement, Weinberger for disengagement. Engagement would likely have involved the use of military force; disengagement offered the comfort of a casualty-free retreat. In the post-Vietnam era, for this president, at this time, disengagement made more sense. He still talked a good game, but when it was time for a decision, he punted. "In the weeks immediately after the bombing," he later wrote, "I believed the last thing we should do was turn tail and leave."58 And yet, fearful of another Vietnam, he waited a few months and then pulled the remaining marines out of Beirut. According to McFarlane many years later, his decision opened the door to the terrorism that has plagued the region and the world ever since. "I am convinced we could have stopped it then, just as it was starting, but Reagan chose not to. #Quote by Marvin Kalb
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Antoine Lavoisier
#14. In every combustion there is disengagement of the matter of fire or of light. A body can burn only in pure air [oxygen]. There is no destruction or decomposition of pure air and the increase in weight of the body burnt is exactly equal to the weight of air destroyed or decomposed. The body burnt changes into an acid by addition of the substance that increases its weight. Pure air is a compound of the matter of fire or of light with a base. In combustion the burning body removes the base, which it attracts more strongly than does the matter of heat, which appears as flame, heat and light. #Quote by Antoine Lavoisier
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Walter Wangerin
#15. Unless you learn to play a duet in the same key, to the same rhythm, a slow process of disengagement will wedge you apart, first secretly, psychologically, and then openly and miserably. #Quote by Walter Wangerin
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Kirsten Olson
#16. Without ongoing training in tailoring instruction to individual learners (and support in doing so), "fault" for underperformance or disengagement from learning is frequently shifted to the child: The child is lazy, has an attitude problem, or refuses to work up to his or her potential. The child is enormously vulnerable in this system. #Quote by Kirsten Olson
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by George Monbiot
#17. All nationhood is to some extent the artificial, the product of historical accident, the convenience of tyrants and the disengagement of colonists. #Quote by George Monbiot
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Gangai Victor
#18. Our musical artistry and leadership of people need to work together to create an environment that welcomes participation instead of causing disengagement. #Quote by Gangai Victor
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Brene Brown
#19. Perfection doesn't exist, and I've found that what makes children happy doesn't always prepare them to be courageous, engaged adults. The same is true for schools. I haven't encountered a single problem that isn't attributed to some combination of parental, teacher, administrative, and/or student disengagement and the clash of competing stakeholders vying to define one purpose. #Quote by Brene Brown
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Douglas Coupland
#20. I think social and moral disengagement is repugnant. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Timi Nadela
#21. Don't give in to the forces of mediocrity that pull so many people into the ranks of disengagement and resignation. Be fearless Be bold. #Quote by Timi Nadela
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Najib Razak
#22. Many young Muslims see no opportunities for themselves and do not feel they have control over their lives or a stake in their nation's future. Such pessimism leads to disengagement. We risk losing a generation of young Muslims to apathy and extremism. #Quote by Najib Razak
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Samuel Johnson
#23. It is not difficult to conceive, however, that for many reasons a man writes much better than he lives. For without entering into refined speculations, it may be shown much easier to design than to perform. A man proposes his schemes of life in a state of abstraction and disengagement, exempt from the enticements of hope, the solicitations of affection, the importunities of appetite, or the depressions of fear. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Alan Greenspan
#24. Fear invariably and universally induces disengagement, and disengagement is negative division of labor. #Quote by Alan Greenspan
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by John Fowles
#25. One kind of person is engaged in society without realizing it; another kind engages in society by controlling it. The one is a gear, a cog, and the other an engineer, a driver. But a person who has opted out has only his ability to express his disengagement between his existence and nothingness. #Quote by John Fowles
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Atul Gawande
#26. No, the more familiar and widely dangerous issue is a kind of silent disengagement, the consequence of specialized technicians sticking narrowly to their domains. "That's not my problem" is possibly the worst thing people can think, whether they are starting an operation, taxiing an airplane full of passengers down a runway, or building a thousand-foot-tall skyscraper. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Brene Brown
#27. I am enough (worthiness versus shame). I've had enough (boundaries versus one-uping and comparison). Showing up, taking risks, and letting myself be seen is enough (engagement versus disengagement). #Quote by Brene Brown
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by John Green
#28. I was surprised. I'd always associated belief in heaven with, frankly, a kind of intellectual disengagement. But Gus wasn't dumb. #Quote by John Green
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Carol Lee
#29. She fails to see who I am, even, for her eyes do not, will not, take me in. Instead they transmit a powerful message. She is like a billboard flashing, starkly: 'Keep Out'. #Quote by Carol Lee
Tornstam And Disengagement quotes by Edwin Newman
#30. Vice-President Ford, possibly preparing for higher duties, assessed Kissinger's part in the Syrian-Israeli troop disengagement as the great diplomatic triumph of this century or perhaps any other. #Quote by Edwin Newman
